Additional Local Landline Numbers

Add a local landline number to your SIM from over 60 countries around the world. This means that if you add a local landline number from your home country, your friends, family & colleagues can call you on a local number and at a local rate while you are travelling. You can also add a local landline number for countries you visit regularly. You can also receive phone calls on your existing mobile number so callers won’t even know you are travelling. Simply forward your existing mobile number to your any local landline number you've purchased and start roaming. Contacts from home call you exactly as they normally do. Standard roaming incoming call rates are applied when receiving calls through a local number. For further information on rates please visit our Rates page. Please note: Some numbers may require identification to be provided to Maxroam, in the form of a digital representation of a Government Issued ID from the country of the local number you wish to purchase accompanied by contact address, phone number and email. This is to combat a growing level of worldwide telephony fraud, and is outside Maxroam SIM's control. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Please see our Restrictions page for more details.
